MOGADISHU, (Horn Observer) At least 7 people were killed and several others were wounded on Saturday after Mogadishu Stabilization Security Unit clashed with organized armed militias in Mogadishu's Daynille neighborhood during security operation, media reported.

The fighting erupted early hours of Saturday after armed militias clashed with the Mogadishu Stabilization Security Unit who were conducting security operation at the Haanta Dheer in Mogadishu’s Dayniile district, the government run news agency (SONNA) reported.

Witnesses and health officials said that at least 7 people were killed in the attack and several others were wounded among them civilians.


Families  who lived at the Haanta Dheer area started to flee with their lives in search for safety as the gunfight raged on Saturday morning.

"We have been hearing heavy exchange of gunfire this morning at the Haanta dheer area,” Mursal Adam said, "But our family started to evacuate the area for security purpose.”

A man who identified himself as a Somali military commander in the area named Abdullahi Farah Siad, told several media stations that, "His army who were stationed at Haanta dheer area came under attack.”,  However his claims could not be independently verified.

Since the launch of the Mogadishu Stabilization Security Unit, the security of the city have significantly improved.
